Nigerian American artist Dawn Okoro has paid attention to ‘Misogynoir’ which is a word coined by feminist professor Moya Bailey for black women who experiences misogyny and racism.

Blacks in general have suffered abuses for their skin colour and culture which was not respected in the past and even in present day, some parts of the world do not accept Blacks as part of the human race.

This has been a worrying subject for many international bodies fighting against racism and the right for all human beings.

Dawn Okoro decided to take up the subject using her painting skills as a medium to send the message across board.

Check her new painting below and the caption for each of them;
